The City of Gainesville is closing the downtown Bo Diddley Community Plaza for renovation tentatively beginning March 1, 2015. Work to refurbish the plaza should be complete in 12 months. Scheduled events and programs that regularly occur at the plaza will be unable to use the facility during the renovation period, including the Union Street Farmers Market, which operates at the plaza Wednesday afternoons. Based on available space needs, feedback from farmers market representatives and city staff, city-owned parking lot no. 10, which is bounded by Southwest Second Street, Southwest First Avenue, Southwest First Street and Southwest Second Avenue was selected as the best alternative location.
